I am getting a used 75gallon tank and stand off ebay! I currently have a 30gal saltwater tank w/ live rock and an assortment of fish. All the products I bought for my 30 gal
. works for a 55-75 gal
. system. I bought it like this because I knew I would get a 75 gal
. once I was successful with the smaller tank. Now here are my questions.
This 75 gal
. comes with a full hood w/ lights and one item I don't have now is a protien skimmer. Will I need to have a glass canopy for such a large tank, and will I now need a protien skimmer as well or can I survive with everything the way it is?
The other thing I wanted to ask is, can I just syphon my water and move my substrate from my 30 gal
. to the 75 gal
. and not have to wait for it to cycle for a month? I have no room for both tanks to be setup. I only have one spot and the 30 gal
. is currently there so I need to move it before I set up the 75 gal
. tank plus my fish will need a place to live. My 30 gal
. will then be used for a sick tank, or my hubby might confiscate it for his ball python, who knows...
Anyway I just need help on how to approach this huge project I am bringing home. I want to make sure I have everything I need for it before I accidently mess up everything I have worked so hard on. Please please help me! Thanks.
